It's coming on Christmas
They're putting up reindeer
Oh I wish I had a river
But it don't snow here
I'm going to make a lot of money
I wish I had a river
I wish I had a river so long
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby cry
He tried hard to help me
And he loved me so naughty
Oh I wish I had a river
I'm so hard to handle
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
Oh I wish I had a river
I wish I had a river so long
Oh I wish I had a river

They're cutting down trees
And singing songs of joy and peace
I could skate away on
